This isn't my puzzle (none have been so far), but one I found.
Taking the image above, please answer the three questions:
- Why is he likely to succeed in life?
- How do we know he's reached middle age
- What does this indicate about his occupation or interests?
Personally I find the third one a bit of a stretch, but you lot are much more clever than me.
HINT For #3:
Camping isn't an awful clue for part of this one. Take in where he is, and what else XL may mean (keep it simple).
